I can not upload excel files to my instructible. I have tried 20 or more times, closed the browser and repeated, tried another browser, renamed the files but nothing seems to work. I have had this problem before and sometimes after about 2 hours of frustration, the files suddenly upload correctly. This is extremely annoying. Can anything be done to fix this fault ?

Newbie I tried many times last night to upload pictures to my library and had no luck. Watched a youtube video on the subject, but still no luck. Are there an instructable to show me what I am doing wrong? I am using a newer Mac. Are the pictures in the wrong format I was able to choose files . when I hit upload, nothing seemed to happen and the library was empty. The text I entered vanished into the unknown.

Hi Everyone, I'm kinda new here at Instructables, and am trying to put up my first Instructable, but I have been encountering a problem with uploading pictures. I add all the pictures I need from my computer, so that they're in a list above the upload button, so then I click the upload button and nothing happens. I thought that maybe the website had somehow uploaded them without me knowing, but whenever I come back to my Library they aren't there. Yes, I've tried tagging them, and even uploading them to photobucket so I could use the internet upload function to see if that worked and it still didn't. I have a feeling there might be something simple that I'm not seeing or getting. Can anyone help? Thanks!

So, I'm trying to start on a new instructable, thing is i've got a LOT of images to upload for it, and the new uploader isnt working for me. yesterday it would let me 6 or so images at a time, any more and it would give me a server error message. today any attempt at all with the new uploader gives me the same server error message. the old uploader works, but it's going ot be a long long painfull process to upload sll the images if i have to go though and select them one at a time. anyone have any ideas?

When making my step-by-step "Homemade Hedbanz Game" Instructable, I tried uploading my Microsoft Word files the same way I uploaded my pictures. They would say they downloaded 100% but I could never find them in my uploaded gallery, nor in my Instructable (I checked the "add to this step" box). I can't figure out how to do it, and I am scared my contest entries won't win because of it (I entered it into the Craft Contest and the Toy Contest). Please help!!

I uploaded about ten photos, all turned out great except one. I tried re-uploading it, and it still looks pixelated. all of the pictures are from the same camera, and all look good on my computers photo viewer, just not on instructables.

Hello, I have an Arduino Duemilinove with Atmega 328 and Arduino 1.0 programming language. I am using a Mac. Whenever I try to upload a program, It tells me avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding. I have downloaded all the drivers and normally the port that the Arduino is on starts with /dev/tty.usbserial, but that does not show up. I have tried on a PC also and it doesn't upload either.
Question by D5quar3 6 years ago | last reply 6 years ago
I just uploaded 200MB of images for a new instructable, and I can't find them in "my library" or anywhere else for that matter. I used the new uploader, and I'm in Firefox 3.0.6 using no funny plugins. (no dragdrop or anything.) I've waited several minutes, since I figured there might be a delay for thumbnail generation or something, but I just can't find the images anywhere. What am I doing wrong?

Question by dimmu1313 10 years ago | last reply 9 years ago
I just tried to create my first instructable but I can't seem to upload an image. Or rather, when I select an image file then click upload I get a progress indicator that goes from 0% to 100%. After it gets to 100% I see a grey progress bar for a fraction of a second then nothing happens, no image, just the page exactly as it was before. As I've never done this before I don't know whether I'm doing something wrong or whether it's a bug. Also, I tried dragging an image to the white box in the middle of the page. That crashed the browser. I'm using Pale Moon and the image is a jpeg <1Mb.

For some reason I can't upload images to an old instructable I've been working on. I can upload them to new instructables, but not an old saved one I'm trying to finish. Also when I scroll through the images in the library, where it displays "showing 10 - 20 of 100" the first number becomes negative? It will say "showing -10 to 20 of 100" or something like that ?
Topic by scraptopower 6 years ago | last reply 6 years ago
This has been going on for a while now, back to when the new photo uploader was still being called a beta feature. Sometimes when a photo is being uploaded, it stalls at 100%. It stays there indefinitely (I've let it sit for up to 5 hours), preventing all the other photos in the queue from uploading. This is very annoying when you're trying to upload 100 photos and leave to do something else, only to find it's been stuck at photo #5 (for example) the whole time you were away! The only way to make things proceed is to cancel the photo that has stalled, then re-upload it once the others have finished. I typically upload larger files in the 2-3MB range. I'm using Firefox (latest version) in Mac OS X. Last time I tried, it did the same thing in Safari. Please take a look at this issue; having to "babysit" my uploads is one of the worst parts of writing an Instructable because it's such a waste of time!

I'm brand new to Instructables and can't even get a small icon photo to upload. The new uploader won't even respond at all and the old uploader will let me select photos but stalls instantly when I try to upload them. It will grind away indefinitely with no results. I even let it go for several hours on a small photo icon I use regularly with no results. For what it's worth I use Safari on a Mac runing OSX 10.5.8 Thanks, Hope someone can get me running on this. I tried the FAQ and found nothing relevant. Most of what I did find was 2007 & 2008

Is something wrong with the image upload? I've tried both Firefox and Internet Explorer; it lets me select the images I want to post, but then when I click "Upload Files," nothing happens. No errors, no warnings, no progress bar, and obviously no image uploads, just sits there. OS: Windows 7 Browser: Firefox Browser: Internet Explorer Java: 6.0.310 (Java 6 build 31) Flash: 11.5.502.146

It looks like image uploads are broken for me, is anyone else having problems? when i attempt to upload a new image it doesn't show up in my library, an old image (previously uploaded) is put in the preview area instead of the new one although it reports that the upload was successful.

Both the old and new uploader was working great for me a while ago. Until recently, the old uploader dose now work for me anymore and the new uploader starts posting tiny pictures. Now every time I try use the new uploader, firefox crashes, and the old uploader looks different, but still does not work!I am trying to use flicker to bypass instructables's uploaders, but I am finding impossible to use! :-( I cannot post any instructables without picture and I have two project ideas for the LED contest, what can I do? Please help me...

Having difficulty uploading files. I've selected the files and pressed the upload button. The percentage uploaded increases to 100% but the files stay on the upload list with a status of 100%. Files are not attached to the step nor do they appear under "your library". I'm using Firefox 14.0.1. I've also tried it on Chrome 20.0.1132.57. Had this problem this morning (Pacific time) and this evening. This morning I was on a different local network than this evening - so not a network problem.

Hey Been a while since I made an Instructable. I browsed, picked several images to upload. Decided I wasn't going to add tags. I couldn't figure out how to actually upload the images. Finally I noticed the "upload" button next to the tags, which I think I'd thought was to save the tags (yes even though it says Upload). I realize you're testing a new uploader so maybe this is moot but I think moving the Upload button to the far right might help. Or maybe I'm the only one having this problem!

Hi, I managed to upload two pictures earlier on, but this does not seem to be working anymore. The pictures seem to be uploading, but they don't show in my image bank. Sadly, this means I've had to publish my paper wallet instructable as is, without much needed pictures :-( Also, the whole site appears to have slowed down to a crawl...

Every time I try to upload a photo I get an error message and a pop up that says the image may have been corrupted. I will admit I'm not the most computer literate person. The only thing I could think of, is that the images may be to big, but I have resized them and still get the error messsage. Any advise?

Hi guys. Recently I remixed a song using garageband, well technically it's not a remix. I just combined the original song with the remixed song. And I was wondering if it is illegal to post it on youtube or something like that.
